What classic Looney Tunes character suffers from rhotacism?
Remember when you were a child and spoke by making your “R’s” sound like “W’s” and everyone thought it was cute? That’s known as rhotacism and some people live with it even as adults. Rhotacism is a speech impediment that is defined by the lack of ability, or difficulty in, pronouncing the “R” sound. In English, the most common occurrence of this type is a pronunciation perceived as closer to “W”. An example of rhotacism would be Elmer Fudd’s pronunciation of "rabbit" as "wabbit". The Looney Tunes character, is notorious for his exaggerated rhotacistic speech ("Be vewwy quiet… I'm hunting wabbits")
